Sacramento – Today, Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) introduced the 47th Assembly District Youth Advisory Committee program. The Youth Advisory Committee is a yearlong program to provide high school students living in the 47th District with leadership development training and an opportunity to discuss important youth related issues occurring in the community.
“Our young people are the next generation of leaders that will contend with the emerging challenges facing our region and state for years to come. That is why it is so important that they are engaged in their community and develop the leadership skills necessary to make a positive impact in their neighborhoods and the 47th Assembly District,” said Assemblymember Reyes.
The committee will meet on a monthly basis to discuss important issues around the district and the state. Among other program requirements, participants will advise Assemblymember Reyes on youth related issues in the district. The committee will also have the opportunity to visit the State Capitol in Sacramento.
